About This Product

Scotts Turf Builder Southern Triple Action is a 3-in-1 formula for Southern grass types that kills listed weeds, prevents and kills fire ants, and fertilizes your lawn. This product controls dandelion, dollarweed, clover, oxalis, plantain, chickweed, and henbit. It prevents and kills fire ants for up to 6 months, while also preventing armyworms, fleas, mole crickets, chinch bugs, sod webworms, and ticks. Lastly, the added fertilizer feeds and strengthens your lawn against Southern stresses like heat and drought. Scotts Turf Builder Southern Triple Action is for use on St. Augustinegrass (including Floratam), Centipedegrass, Zoysiagrass, and Carpetgrass. Apply when weeds are actively growing. We recommend using a Scotts spreader to apply this product. For Scotts broadcast/rotary spreaders, use a setting of 4 ¼. For Scotts drop spreaders, use a setting of 8 ½. The product must be watered in immediately after application. Do not allow people and pets to re-enter the treated area until watering-in is complete and the surface is dry. One 26.64 lb. bag of Scotts Turf Builder Southern Triple Action covers 8,000 sq. ft.

    Q:What fertilizer to use for thinning st Augustin grass
    by|Jun 16, 2024
    1 Answer
    Answer This Question

    A:  We recommend Scotts Turf Builder Southern Lawn Food for St Augustinegrass. Because this is a straight lawn fertilizer/lawn food (meaning it does not have any pesticide active ingredients and is strictly nutrients) it can be used on any grass type.

            We're sorry to read about your disappointment with Scotts Turf Builder Triple Action and appreciate your feedback. This product will kill actively growing broadleaf weeds and prevent grassy weeds that are listed on the label. It will not prevent broadleaf weeds (before or after the application) and it will not kill existing crabgrass or other grassy type weeds. For broadleaf weed control temperatures must be consistently (several days in a row) between 60 and 80 degrees F. For listed grassy weeds to be prevented this has to be applied before the target grassy weeds germinate. Weeds will die within 2 to 4 week period, depending on temperature conditions. We want you to be confident in our products. For this reason, we offer a product guarantee to our consumers. At your earliest convenience, please reach out to us at 888-270-3714 if we can further assist.
              Does not work and highly overpriced
              I bought this exactly one month ago. Followed the instructions exactly. I bought it to help kill the weeds in my 6 month old sodded lawn. You can tell exactly where the fertilizer went as it did a great job on the grass. It also did a great job fertilizing the weeds. I seem to have a large amount of cudweed and it did absolutely nothing to control or kill that.

                Product is useless unless you want crabgrass
                Absolutely waste of my $50. I applied this as listed using the spreader. Made sure the temperature was right and that there was no immediate rain in the forecast. Watered it in after the recommended days. I used it only on the side and front yard because I got tired. Thank God because crabgrass started sprouting like crazy only where I used it. No crabgrass in my backyard only other weeds. I had to mow nearly twice in the week because we had rain and it kept growing. Then I decided to pull up the crabgrass by hand to get rid of it which took me several days. Now I have a citation from the HOA due to weeds. SMH.

                  Waste of money
                  I've used triple action for awhile now and always been satisfied until this year. I spread one bag the beginning of March and no results, still had weeds growing crazy and my grass was not growing. Bought a second bag on April 1 ans stll nothing. I applied it as directed, temps were correct, it was watered right after putting it down. Very disappointed

                      Scotts Experience Is My Lawns Advantage
                      In just one week I have seen a difference in my lawn. It’s not perfect yet, but I’m confident I made a correct decision in using this product for my lawn. We have St. Augustine grass, something I haven’t been accustomed to having for a lawn; so I now feel I have an advantage in combating weeds and pests creating a better lawn.
                      by
                        I bought and applied this product 3 weeks ago and see that my grass is much greener and thicker but my dollar weed and oxalis are also much healthier than before application , was not expecting this result. This is not the first year I have used this product, but the first time I feel it has not performed as should have. This does not make me happy…

                          Worth Every Dollar
                          Since I live in southwest Florida, it was warm enough to apply this product after a couple of mowings in February. My yard had a lot of dollar weeds along with the usual south Florida weeds. The lawn was really struggling. I followed the directions and applied this product on February 27, 2024. I let the sprinklers water it in once a week and had several inches of rain on March 22nd. During this time I did not mow the yard, much to my wife’s chagrin. I finally mowed the lawn on March 26, and here is the result. The dollar weeds are history, my wife is thrilled and the lawn looks great.
